asked the Leader of the House:
Why the statement on the war in Lebanon made to the House of Commons during an adjournment debate on 20 July (HC Deb, col. 510) by the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs was not also made in the House of Lords.[HL7366]
Adjournment debates in the House of Commons are not repeated in this House. A Statement on the situation in Lebanon was made to the House of Commons on 17 July, and repeated in this House. The Statement by the Prime Minister on the G8 Summit on 18 July also addressed events in the Middle East, and was repeated in this House.
